Chips Coming to a Brain Near You

"While they haven't tested the microchip in live rats yet, their research using slices of rat brain indicates the chip functions with 95 percent accuracy. It's a result that's got the scientific community excited."
...
"The team expects it will take two to three years to develop the mathematical models for the hippocampus of a live, active rat and translate them onto a microchip, and seven or eight years for a monkey. They hope to apply this approach to clinical applications within 10 years. If everything goes well, they anticipate seeing an artificial human hippocampus, potentially usable for a variety of clinical disorders, in 15 years."

That honestly kind of scares me. I'm not entirely sure why.

Thats the good stuff baby
I'd seen this already, but its just sooo cool. Once they start testing these things in people, we are going to learn soo much about how the brain works. I'm guessing your implanted cell phone will be able to use your own eyes as a video camera by 2050 at the latest. :)
